Love it or hate it, SoundCloud provides content creators the world over a platform on which they can reach an ever-growing audience. The music streaming service has compiled an infographic that breaks down which artists saw the most success over the past year.

Chicago, Illinois rapper Juice WRLD received the "Top Artist" honor for amassing more likes, reposts and streams than any other uploader. His song "Lucid Dreams" was also declared "Top Track" for racking up more plays than any other upload on the platform. Two Friends and Illenium also won "Top DJ Set" and "Top Remix," respectively - the former for "Big Bootie Mix Vol. 13," and the latter for his remix of The Chainsmokers' "Don't Let Me Down."

The SoundCloud Playback 2018 infographic also delves into the most used tags, biggest traffic spikes, and other distinctions. Look through it in its entirety below.
